Reducing the harmful impact on society

We research how corruption can be addressed
in different contexts. The U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre ( provides research and evidence to help international development actors get sustainable results.

U4 runs online courses and in-country workshops on anti- corruption measures and strategies for our partner agencies and their counterparts. U4 TRIAL tests new ideas for reducing corruption in the field. 

We benefit from a broad network of international anti-corruption institutions, researchers and practitioners, as well as other Bergen based scholars and students.

Current focus:

  • Fragile states
  • Gender 
  • International drivers of corruption
  • Migration 
  • Natural resources and energy 
  • Tax, public financial management 
  • (PFM) and procurement 
  • Sectors: health, education, justice, 
  • aid, private sector
  • People’s engagement
  • Informal contexts
  • Measurement and evaluation
